Running Firefox from second Glibc

Hello 
 
For some time now I have been running Firefox 0.8 using a second instance of glibc(2.3.2) 
in /usr/local/glibc2.   This has helped me avoid having to upgrade for the moment.  I have been using the 
following scipt to run Firefox: 
 
#!/bin/sh 
# 
# Begin /usr/local/firefox/firefox-start 
 
/usr/local/glibc2/lib/ld-linux.so.2 --library-path /usr/local/glibc2/lib:/lib:/usr/lib ./firefox-bin 
 
# End /usr/local/firefox/firefox-start 
 
I've just installed the new Firfox 1.0 and it refuses to run, giving the following error: 
 
./firefox-bin: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.3' not found (required by ./firefox-bin) 
./firefox-bin: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.3' not found (required by /usr/local/firefox/libmozjs.so) 
etc 
etc 
 
I've upgraded to glibc-2.3.3, but his makes no difference, Firefox only requires 2.3.0 anyway.  Any idea 
what's going on here I can see no reason why it shouldn't run? 
 
thanks 
 
MAC
